Mexican Ring Smuggled Hundreds of Pounds of Meth a Month into Southern California : Eastern Group Publications

Mexican Ring Smuggled Hundreds of Pounds of Meth a Month into Southern California : Eastern Group Publications: "Ten people in LA and the Inland Empire were arrested last Thursday, April 1, for alleged involvement with a Mexico-based drug trafficking ring accused of smuggling 200 pounds of methamphetamine every month into Southern California.
According to Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the ring, known as the “Don Chuy Trafficking Organization,” would obtain meth in Mexico and transport it to the U.S. through hidden compartments in false car batteries in vehicles driven across the border. The ring’s alleged leader, Jesus Marquez-Marquez, known as “Don Chuy,” would store the drugs in Tijuana stash houses before it was moved across the border.
The charge they carry has a statutory maximum penalty of life in federal prison without parole. During the eight-month investigation of the organization, authorities seized 90 pounds of meth, a street value of over $5 million."
